13 - Federer won all 13 of his service games against Cilic and broke his opponent five times.

The Swiss player reached his record-breaking 8th crown after he smashed Marin Cilic 6:3, 6:1, 6:4 in three sets.

Cilic explained that his tears at 3-0 down in the second set were more a result of his disappointment at not being able to perform at his best rather than a legacy of the pain. Physio had to come on the court and give some treatment and painkillers to the Croatian, playing his maiden Wimbledon final. Cilic dropped the set 6-1 and called a medical timeout to have his left foot bandaged and take a painkiller.

The 35-year-old was in superb form at this year's edition, storming to the title without dropping a single set throughout the tournament. He will face Marin Cilic in the final.

The US Open starts 20 days after Federer turns 36, where he could continue his dominance into his late-30s at the stadium named after Arthur Ashe.
